Another day, another Wordle, another daily Wordle column from your humble narrator and puzzle solver.
If you had told me when I was in college in the early 2000s that I would one day write a daily guide to a 5-letter word puzzle game that took the internet by storm, I don’t know what would have happened.
Back then, there were no real blogs. Until MySpace came along in 2003, there was no social media, and even then, most people didn’t know what it was. I didn’t own a “smartphone” until after I graduated.
Still, I want to be a writer after graduation, and I’ve been writing professionally for the past 12 years, so I think it’s a win. If sometimes that means you pay your bills with some game guides and write your favorites next to them, that’s fine with me.
Anyway, it’s Monday and we have a Wordle to fix. Let’s get to work.
